. if tomorrow you wake up and you find there is a 10% tax on your bank deposits, you will not be happy. if you're a politician in cyprus you're dealing with this and they're bank backing away from it. it was a bad idea in the first place. cyprus needs $10 billion from the european union and the european central bank and they have given others like greece hundreds of billions of dollars. so they're upset. the cypriot banks are insolvent. they're going, they will get a run. melissa: they are insolvent and they will get a run, yeah. >> but it's not cyprus's fault in my view. melissa: doesn't matter whose fault it is if it happens. julia, what is the outcome? what is the domino effect? which if there is a run on the banks there which there certainly will be, should i withdraw money from my bank here? >> no, i don't think so. the structure of the cypriot problem was quite unique the bank assets in cyprus are something like 730% of the country's gdp. it really is is a safe haven for russian investors. that is why when they needed money, there is always going to be some burden-sharing in a bailout. w

taxes on the wealthy, put through a payroll tax increase, entitlements. we've got two out of three going. we had the president and congress raising taxes on the wealthy. i don't think bernanke wants to be the fed of 1937 because the recession came back aggressively and it was only world war ii that made the hiring come back. he doesn't want to be the guy -- he'd rather be second-guessed by all the bears who come on and say he's got to tighten because my short positions aren't making any money. he's not responding to the people who are short. he's actually responding to the american people. old-fashioned kind of guy. >> in terms of the reaction in the markets after the ben bernanke news conference, was that surprising at all that, for whatever reason, for whatever he said, the markets managed to rise and actually reached the highs of the day afterwards? >> i think there were a lot of people who expected that he would put in some language that just says, we're not going to keep rates low indefinitely because we see real estate, affordability is fantastic. you pick up the front page of the
proposal from the eu came with strings attached in the form of a tax ranging between 6% and 9% on federally insured bank depositors in cyprus. most people i spoke to thought it was terrible idea. sheer what former treasury secretary larry summers told me. >> this idea that the little guy is the first victim in going after moral hazard is a new idea in resolving financial crisis and is not a very good idea as pictures of people lining up at the atm machines demonstrate. >> meanwhile, important earnings news this week. software giant oracle missed earnings expectations, as did transportation bellwether fed ex. general mills, housing company lennar and williams sonoma all came in ahead of expectations. more strength in the housing sector to report. new home starts roast 8/10 of a percent in february, about what analysts were looking for. that's an annualized rate of 917,000 new homes. the federal reserve continuing its easy money policy and the banking crisis in cyprus. which is more important to your money? joining me right now to talk investing, liz ann sonders is chief investment strategist
from the social security tax increase and the cross the board spending cuts that went into effect on march 1st? and is it possible that the fed might see a need to provide more support to the economy, if that -- because of that drag, the drag on fiscal. >> well, our analysis is fairly comparable to analysis that congressional budget office as presented to the congress. and they estimate that putting together all the fiscal measures, including the fiscal cliff deal, the sequester, and other cuts, that federal fiscal restraint in 2013 is cutting something like 1.5 percentage points off of growth. which, of course, is very significant. so that is an issue for us. we -- you know, we take as given what the fiscal authorities are doing. the economy is weaker, job creation is slower than it would be otherwise. and so that is one of the reasons that our policy has been as aggressive as it is. that being said, as i've said many times, monetary policy cannot offset a fiscal restraint of that magnitude. and so the final outcome will be worse, or in terms of jobs, than would have been the cas
at conocophillips. >> there's an opportunity to generate a couple of trillion of dollars in tax revenue over the next 20 years. there's opportunity to generate millions of additional jobs. >> well, believe it or not, joining us right now is former nfl quarterback drew bledsoe. he's an investor in a company called ecosphere, which is making a big bet on fracking, and more specifically, drew, it's about the cleaning of the water that's used in the fracking process. it's an environmentally clean process, which has a lot of people worried about the impact fracking has on the environment. this is a possible solution, i guess, yes? >> it is, exactly. i help lead an investment group and funded some brilliant scientists down in florida actually a few years ago. our technology uses no chemicals. we actually in the past since 2008, we've cleaned over 2.8 billion gallons of water, which has eliminated 1.3 million gallons of chemicals. we allow these companies to, first of all, clean the water before they use it the first time, and then also recycle it and reuse it in their process. so we're closing the
on a positive note when something like bank deposits will be taxed as a way to raise money. they don't understand why investors here like you and me aren't more worried that the authorities there are willing to risk bank runs in spain or italy because of this hair-brain scheme. at this stage they would gladly pay for rioters in the streets of cyprus if we can get the media to accentuate today and link cyprus to the rest of europe and the united states, even if the european authority recognize that is the issue is that banks are safe havens for russian laundered money! the short sellers, they would at least pay cash for the numbers to line up. once they get some runs going leads me to the simple conclusion that intellectually short-sellers will do the best to say whatever resolution is arrived at or not arrived at, we have got the dreaded are you ready scheme daddy lehman brothers on our hands! wow. yes, they are envoking lehman. that's what they're doing. why lehman brothers? because you know what? lehman is code for thermal nuclear financial war. it was the line drawn in the sand be
their cards at the westin unit locations and also allow them -- i give you an example. jesus to give the tax refunds -- choose us to give that tax returns and let the cardholder's then can use cash. >> reporter: one of the things you take advantage of is that trust factor. people still distressed credit card and mobile technology, and you're able to leverage that. >> a system which the people can go online shopping endo use their cards and go to western union location, pay cash to get their goods. >> reporter: you just came in from the sea and air headed to munich and then going to is ten boat. in every place around the globe. overall picture? >> our perception of overall, it's getting better, would not say that that is a big turnaround. it is still challenging. this service industry is getting better. the construction industry is getting a little bit better. the u.s. is a very good position. europe is still of the challenging position, democratic issues. it's challenging in europe and russia and japan, but i would say that is better -- i'm cautiously optimistic. >> reporter: we like that. e
, certainly, this is a place that advertised discretion and what they call tax optimization. and they did have lower corporate tax rates. so there are legitimate reasons to put your money here. but, also, previous governments than the current one, they wanted to be a international financial center. they worked very hard to attract capital from all over the world. it is the business model of this country. but it's not going to be very for long. they just can't do it anymore. >>> one statistic to leave you with. the banking system is so much larger here in cyprus, if we wanted to have one in the united states that was as large equivalent to our economy, we would need 45 more jpmorgans. that's how much bigger we would have to get to match the size that they've done here relative to the size of this place. >> thank you very much. >>> well, a big bipartisan vote at the capital, the senate overwhelmingly passed a massive stop-gap spending bill that will keep washington up and running through the end of september. it leaves federal spending cuts in place. but that could mean job furloughs for hundred
tax on the large depositors which would lead to a tax of around 15% or 16%. or they can basically restructure their two bad banks. it would be very simple to do that. what would happen is the banks would write off all their equity, write-off their senior debt, write-off their dpovt subordinated debt. and then the large depositors would president owners of the new bank and convert. >> narrator: between 50% and 30% of their new depositors in the banks. >> could they say we don't want to do anything of those? >> certainly they can choose to do that. i don't think that's necessary. basically, if they do nothing, and the ecb carries through with its policy of cutting off liquidity on monday, they will have no choice but to restructure the two banks. >> are you surprised to see lines forming? >> no. depositors are frightened for their money. they've been told there's a high likelihood of the banks closing and staying closed for a period of time. in fact, the lines are not as long as i would have expected them. >> wow. interesting 30i7b9. i had a discussion with simon hobbs, my colleague
" and bringing it back to new york, a state budget proposal offers tax breaks for live tv talk shows that relocate to new york. some are calling it the jimmy fallon tax credit. >>> misch ole oh, was made to look like a queen wearing a tiara on british stamps. it's actually a new ad for britain's sunday times style magazine. >>> house democratic leader nancy pelosi blasted republican efforts to include entitlement reforms and any debt ceiling deal she says republicans want to eliminate medicare and privatise social security. >>> if the goal is to have them wither on the vine or reduced in a way that does not meet their purpose, then those are fighting words. >> fighting words. >>> and some very strong words on the floor of the house yesterday, thursday, rather, from minnesota republican congresswoman michelle bachmann about repealing the affordable care act. >> that's why we're here. because we're saying let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. let's care about people. >> and that's your mor
of illicit money. stuart: russian mob money. >> and russian tax money. stuart: i was going to ask, this mob they have taken, somehow siphoned money off the russians. when i think of mob i think of prostitution and illegal gambling. in russia, it's siphoning off money. >> yes, you have magnates that don't want irs scrutiny, swiss scrutiny, cyprus is the place to go. it's not just traditional mobsters, there's a nexis in moscow between putin's russia between the officials and corrupt individuals. stuart: go on and say it, is putin pals with the mob? >> you would think he wouldn't mind. if people who are skirting russian taxes, hiding money in cyprus were getting a 10% haircut, you'd think he wouldn't mind, but he's upset and the cypriot foreign minister is grovelling. >> and here you say they're saying they're going to grab some of the mob money, the germans told them to do that. >> that's right, angela merkel saying, eat your vegetables, beyond keynesian, a money grab. and ecb and imf as well all of these bad actors. >> you've got cyprus playing off the russian mob and angela merkel of germa
to collect sales tax from all out of state internet retailers will take place in the senate today. inevitably, it has a lot of support from the big box retailers in particular. let's bring in john harwood who is live from d.c. though this may just be a symbolic vote, weir to are told john. >> symbolic, but not meaningl s meaningless. it's a spring training of sorts to test opinion within congress on various causes. we saw a vote yesterday on the budget resolution, on the repeal of a medical device tax that was included to help finance the national health care law in the early part of the obama administration. the reason it's spring training is that budget resolutions themselves are not lost. so these are not binding votes, but they're a way to test sent ims for what they make later on and that's what we're seeing on the online sales tax situation. 48 states already have laws on the books requiring online retailers to collect state sales tax, but those laws are often ignored and you have a bill that has some bipartisan support that would require all states to collect those taxes. if split, th
of that whole business, in terms of taxing depositors, and we know that we continue to have issues in terms of the debt crisis. we are not, necessarily, seeing solutions there. >> i think you see -- if that fear were true, you would see it reflected in the peripheral european countries. i think they mark scyprus as a special case. >> mark, how are you investing at this point? you've got $54 million under management there. you've been bullish. do you want to put new money to work here, even though the market is up 10% year-to-date? >> short answer, yes, maria. the fact of the matter is, we think the fundamental underpinnings, particularly domestically, continue to be encouraging, and we're encouraging investors as a result of some of the volatility we've had in non-u.s. equity markets, to begin the scale-in there as well, because we think valuations are even more attractive. but i do think this cypresicyprg could be a big deal. the precedent it could set relative to marketdowns of small account deposits in other peripheral countries, particularly spain and italy. and the last thing we need t
which is positive and may be offsetting in terms of what washington has taken away by tax increases and sequestration it is a small episode. >> let's dig deeper. do you think that the level of profit growth will not justify any real further expansion of the price earnings multiple or what? >> i would say the first part, yes. if you look at profits they are very, very strong and have been for a while but it is a maturing earnings cycle. also in this environment the u.s. economy is growing more like 2% and a lot less like 4 in that environment pricing is going to be challenged and the top line sales is not going to be universal for all firms. it will be balance sheet by balance sheet and case by case. security collection becomes far more important. >> i was going to say as you point out the profit growth picture has been pretty good but we are getting at the mature point in that cycle and the forecast is about 1% or 2% overall growth. there are always ways to make more money than the index tracking would lead you to believe. where do you think the pockets of possible better than avera
>> washington raised income taxes on the wealthy. >> boo! >> took the top marginal rate to the astounding 75% and instituted a 2% payroll tax for social security. their goal? they wanted to start trying to balance the budget because the president and treasury secretary were worried about the long term deficit? does that sound familiar? at the exact same time, the fed tightened rates, doing what all the bears say bernanke should do, betting that inflation could rage and rage easily if the fed stayed easy, which is what his critics are saying he should do right now. but when we went down this road in 1937 it sent the economy into an amazing tail spin. causing a recession within a depression. it was an economic calamity that was totally avoidable if the people in power made different, smarter choices. especially the federal reserve. ben bernanke does not want history to repeat itself. he's not going down the path of what the fed did in 1937. he's not stupid. even though that's exactly the path unfortunately that the president and congress are taking. bernanke recognizes that obama and congress
allows pinnacle to usist losses to cancel out the taxes they might owe for profits down the road. the corporate income tax bill will be tiny and nonexistent for years to come. there is another reason they get a higher valuation and that's growth. b&g has been growing sales consistently while pinnacle sales have been flat. the valuation disparity with b&g, let's say pinnacle deserves to trade 1.5 times sale. still a big discount to b&g. it would make this a $30 stock which is 50% higher than the high end of pinnacle's price range. i think $30 is a reasonable tashgt. especially since they are making smart moves. they are cutting costs. management is doing a terrific job. they made a conference call acting like they were a public company. the environment seems to be improving. pinnacle can do another acquisition. the company is paying you to wait to get their house in order with that great dividend. let's not forget, last week ken powell was on the show, he told us food inflation has peaked and competition is less fierce? that could help. pinnacle foods reminds me of long-time "mad
